Memory Lane is a recurring feature in which we dig through photo and video archives for classic moments. Patrick Rafter was always a man of the people. Here he gives an adoring fan a moment to remember, gives those behind the lens an adoring view to remember, while getting a lesson on the cool way to wear a snap-back flat-brim. Everyone wins!
